The weigh-in for the Irish Heavyweight Championship fight took place at the former Harland & Wolff Drawing Offices on Friday.

The fight is meant to crown the new All Ireland Heavyweight champion, although it is unclear whether the Irish boxing authorities will actually sanction its outcome following a dispute over refereeing.

Rules require a 10 round contest and a single judge, while the televised fight is scheduled for 12 rounds and three arbiters.

The 40-year-old Belfast man is the underdog against 23-year-old Tyson Fury who has an unbeaten record.

Big crowds are expected at the Odyssey Arena for the fight night, which will also feature a series of all-Irish derby clashes.

"It's a great night for boxing fans and the fans can be sure they are in for a real treat," promoter Mick Hennessy said.

Joining Tyson Fury and Martin Rogan on the night will be middleweight sensation Chris Eubank Jr from Brighton, former Commonwealth champion John O'Donnell, Belfast fighters Dee Walsh, Darren Corbett, Tommy Tolan, Ciaran Healy, Marc McCullough, Conall Carmichael, along with Moses Matovu and Co Mayo's Michael Sweeney.
